PS Other than the AirHawk, any seat mods?...
19" front makes it a different bike, although as you now know, the Versys will get there on 17s. had the same experience when i ran that 130/80 TKC front up there in 2009. talk about a beastly lookin' bike, everyone had to stop by to check it out. people are skeptical, but you can scuff those TKCs right to the edge.
air hawk works for me, good for 1000 miles, no problem.
any questions on the DL1000 wheel, just ask.
